Apparently a private vegetable garden isn’t enough for the Obama family. Their need for vitamins A to zinc drew the First Lady to the newly established FRESHFARM Market on Vermont Avenue “by the White House.” Only a week ago, our FLOTUS reportedly submitted a request to the city for the appropriate road closures, etc. Usually, such a request takes months/years to be okayed. Not the case here!
FLOTUS addressed the 300-person crowd, saying “I’ve never seen so many people excited about fruits and vegetables. Yay for vegetables!!!”
What did the First Lady purchase, you ask? For a total of $28, she bought: a wheel of organic Camembert, chocolate milk, eggs, Tuscan kale, cherry tomatoes, Asian pears, “patriotic” potatoes (red, blue and German butterball), and hot peppers.
At one point, a fellow produce-junkie chided, “Don’t forget the brussel sprouts!,” to which Mrs. Obama replied “I don’t know if the president likes brussel sprouts.”
When will FLOTUS start hawking the White House Garden wares?
